My name is Gabriel Alberts and I am currently a first-year PhD student in the SHBT program at Harvard. I am interested in study signal processing techniques to improve sound localization abilities for people with hearing aids.
Prior to entering graduate school, I spent a year with Dr. Mark Sheplak in the Interdisciplinary Microsystems Group at the University of Florida studying the acoustic properties of an ionophone for its use in high-frequency testing of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) microphones. I also spent a summer at the National Institute of Standards and Technology analyzing reconstruction form errors of CT systems used for checking intricately manufactured mechanical parts.
I received my BS in Physics and BM in Music for violin performance both from the University of Florida in 2014. Go Gators! I performed my undergraduate research under Dr. Guido Mueller in the Department of Physics studying mirror birefringence using a laser heterodyne polarimetry design.
When I'm not studying for classes, I enjoying playing soccer with the GSAS intramural team and playing music with my violin (some classical, some jazz, and some Irish fiddle).
